Submitted papers should follow the IEEE conference format (2 columns, 10 pt, single-line spacing, A4 paper) and should be submitted in PDF format.

LaTeX and MS Word templates may be found at:

Talk proposals may follow any suitable format.


All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the program committee. Accepted contributions will be made available through an online workshop proceedings, but they will not be formally published to not hinder later publication as a full conference paper.

Submission website:

To submit a proposal for a technical presentation or an experiment report without an accompanying paper, upload a one-page PDF file listing the title and a ~500 word abstract to the submission website.

To submit a short paper, upload a PDF file (up to 3 page) to the submission website

To submit a full paper, upload a PDF file (up to 6 pages) to the submission website.

The papers, as well as all talk proposals, will be reviewed by the workshop program committee. All accepted papers will be made available to all participants one week before the workshop so that contributions can be examined prior to the event. The slides of all accepted talks will be collected at the workshop and made available on the workshop homepage after the workshop.

We want to encourage scientific reproducibility, and discourage redundant work within the community. Thus, it is strongly encouraged that code relevant to each submission is publicly available, and a link to it included in the submission. By submitting a paper, the authors agree and confirm that:

  • neither this paper nor a version close to it is under submission or will be submitted elsewhere before acceptance notification

Further, by submitting a paper or a talk proposal, the authors agree and confirm that:

  • if accepted, at least one author will register for OSPERT by the special registration deadline set in the notification of acceptance, and present the paper at the workshop in person.

A copy of the proceedings will be made available online. The copyright remains with the authors.
